The woollen coffin is handmade in Yorkshire using pure new British wool, supported on a strong recycled cardboard frame. Wool is a fibre with a true “green” lineage that is both sustainable and biodegradable. The interior is generously lined with organic cotton and attractively edged with jute and has a waterproof base which is also biodegradable.
Independently tested and accredited for strength and weight bearing up to 42 stone, the coffin’s unique design combines the highest environmental standards with an attractive and soft feel. Designed to differ from the traditional wooden coffin, it offers a contemporary style with comfortable handling. The concept is completed with a personalised embroidered woollen name plate. All the materials used in the woollen coffin are readily biodegradable and suitable for cremation and all types of burial. The woollen coffin is available in a range of sizes including infant and children’s.
